are losing. according to the commonwealth fund, states not expanding medicaid under obama care will collectively lose more than 35 billion in federal funds in 2022 alone. this report covered 20 states all with republican governors and/or state legislatures that refuse to expand medicaid under the law after the u.s. supreme court made it optional in june. joining me now is kentucky governor steve bashir. sir, we talked about this and the success your state has seen because it's being held up as the state of success. all of whom are now eligible to be covered either through medicaid expansion or your state-run health exchange. your state's success was a result of planning and testing, but i'm curious, have you heard from other governors or state officials outside of the boundaries here that look at your success and want to know how you got this right and how they can replicate that in their own states? >> i've talked to some other governors as well as our staff talking to their staffs and trying to help out in any way we can. obviously, each state is unique that's why i am will s

under the aca, but under obama care as a whole. take a listen. >> first of all, this isn't comprehensive because it's excluding the undocumented immigrant and it's excluding the unborn baby, so we begin to bristle at that. and secondly we said, and wait a minute, we who are pretty -- we catholics who are kind of among the pros when it comes to providing health care do it because of our religious conviction and because of the dictates of our conscience and now we're being asked to violate some of those. so that's when we began to worry and drawback and say mr. president, please, you're really kind of -- you're really kind of pushing aside some of your greatest supporters here. >> congressman, as a catholic do you agree with that? the cardinal went on to say they have been on the front end of this, i think he threw out 1919, trying to get our government to take up what it means to have health care in this country. but do you think that catholic supporters are going to hear the cardinal there and say, you know what, maybe i don't think so highly of obama care. >> i just hope that all suppor

is after five years of living under president obama, you know, he has little to show for what he's done for the black community. in fact if you want to focus on his health care law, his health care law has cost jobs, particularly, you know, jobs in the black community. an he's done very little to speed up the job prospects of millions in black america and millions of americans across the country. so while we're focused on, you know, trying to create jobs, private sector jobs, good-paying jobs, career-making jobs, i would ask, you know, what exactly has the president done for the black community? and the effects of his policies, the effects of president obama's policies -- >> why didn't the jobs act pass in the house? >> you can ask house republicans. or house democrats. >> but that was a led niinitiate by president obama and had the support that it needed from the democratic side. why didn't that initiative move further through the house? >> yeah. you know, a lot of the president's economic policies are based on tax and spend initiatives, things that we've tried in the past and that hav

state for how obama care can work. sir, it's good to have you here. you're from a red state where the democratic governor there made it his mission to get as many residents signed up under the health care law as possible. as a result, we've got more than 60,000 in your home state signing up for coverage as of this week. and in a state where 640,000 are lacking proper insurance. how do you think that the white house's pr push nationally to replicate what we're seeing in kentucky? >> well, i think what is ultimately going to sell the affordable care act is neighbor telling 98 ponen9nene bore, rel telling relative about the positive experiences they have had. in kentucky, that's what's sustained the incredible success we've had is people are saying, hey, this is a pretty good thing. i'm going to try it. that's what helps us sell the program ultimately. it probably won't be speeches, it will be actual positive experiences. >> let's talk about that ripple effect because just this morning white house advisers briefed white house democrats that healthcare.gov stood up to one million visi
